Sapa announced an 18-month exclusive agreement with PPG Industries, which will provide Sapa with exclusive rights to administer PPG’s coatings warranty on completed aluminum products.

“Given our work with Sapa in the past, we have confidence in the quality of the aluminum extrusions and paint application process they produce for their customers,” says Brian Knapp, coil and building products director at PPG Industries.

As part of the agreement, Sapa can now transfer PPG’s coatings warranty along with Sapa’s applicator warranty directly to its customers that have purchased coated aluminum products. PPG will warrant film integrity, chalk and color fade when properly applied to Sapa’s pre-treated aluminum products. The warranty extends for varying time periods according to treatments and paint type.

The joint warranty, which began September 10, will run through March 31, 2017.
